Counseling for adolescents and adults in the Dover NH area.


About Me

My name is Shawn Teal. I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor practicing in Dover New Hampshire. I began my career 20 years ago as an outreach counselor for individuals living in the community who needed daily support after prolonged hospitalizations. I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a  Bachelors of Science in Psychology from Salem State College in 2001 and completed my Masters of Science in Counseling and Psychological Services in 2004, also at Salem State College. While working on my degrees, I worked  full-time as a mental health counselor at the Anna Jaques Child and Adolescent psychiatric unit and per diem on the Adult psychiatric unit. During my graduate studies I completed internships at Harbor Schools, a residential program for at-risk  adolescents and another at the Essex County Correctional Facility.  Upon completion of my Masters degree I was hired  as a mental health clinician for the Essex County Correctional Facility and worked there for three years counseling inmates. In 2007 I joined The Amesbury Psychological Center, a group practice in Amesbury and provided counseling/psychotherapy to children, adolescents and adults on an individual outpatient level. I also facilitated group therapy for adolescents at a local charter school to work on anger, substance abuse and other issues facing adolescents. During my time at the Amesbury Psychological Center I decided to further my education and completed my Master's of Business Administration at The University Of Phoenix, which I completed in 2008.

I opened my private practice in January 2009 in a historic mill building in downtown Amesbury and in April 2015 I moved to  my current location at 6 Old Rochester Rd Suite 302 in Dover NH. I look forward to continuing the work I have been doing for the last 20 years by offering confidential, non-judgmental counseling/therapy to those who wish to address problems in their lives or to just improve their quality of life.

I have been  happily married to my wife Tina for the past 11 years. I have 3 sons, Shawn Jr. Ashton and Tristan. When not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, playing guitar, listening to music or enjoying the outdoors.
